Description

About the Engineering Team

The Engineering team at Syapse builds our revolutionary oncology decision support platform that empowers physicians to deliver consistent, high-quality precision cancer care. We’re scaling our data platform using distributed systems, stream processing, and microservices. To do this and tackle all our engineering challenges, our autonomous, customer value focused scrum teams work in short sprints and own product areas end to end. Our domain-based guilds (e.g. Data Semantics, Web Technology, Architecture) balance that by encouraging the building of communities and foster collaboration across teams.

As Syapse continues to grow, we’ll use advanced software engineering methods to expand the capabilities of the platform—and help deliver the best cancer care to every patient.

About the role

You will join our newly-formed ecosystem team whose focus is to develop data-intensive applications that are the bridge between our health-system customers and companies in the healthcare ecosystem pioneering the use of real world evidence in the treatment of cancer. As an early member of the ecosystem team, you will have a unique opportunity to establish new infrastructure and processes that enable us to deliver insights that drive the practice of precision medicine forward. As a data architect, you will be our expert on healthcare data models, data structures, and standards. You will drive the design of our data stores for ecosystem applications. You will work in close collaboration with data engineers, server-side engineers, and clinical informatics team members. You will make sure our ecosystem applications have clinical, molecular, and billing data structured in a way that empowers the team to build industry-leading analytics pipelines, data visualization applications, and other services.

Our team is based out of Syapse’s East Coast office and takes pride in our unique culture and environment. Our mission as a company is a serious one, so you can expect to join a nimble team that strives for ever increasing standards of delivery with quality. Fortunately, when you love what you do and you are surrounded by great people, you can grow and accomplish more than you think possible.
